    Alopecia Awareness Month

    Do you ever wake up in the morning and instantly feel sad? Knowing that you don’t have hair can have that effect on you. Sometimes, you can wake up feeling like badass b and sometimes you wake up feeling like the whole world is shit and nothing is ever right in the world. September is Alopecia Awareness Month, so I just wanted to write a quick post. Two years ago I wrote a post about my journey with alopecia but haven’t really written about it since. I have been more open about it on Instagram and the support has been so amazing. Admittedly, it has taken a mental toll on…

    2018 Reflection

    Happy New Year, my lovelies! 💕 The last time I did one of these reflections was in 2017, and I thought it was a really good way to look back on the year and really discover what I learnt about not only myself but also the world around me. 2018 was, for all intents and purposes, actually a pretty good year. People have said it was up and down, and sure I’ve had some really bad downs but I still managed to go away quite a bit, eat some really good food and create new memories with the ones I love. So, without further ado here is my reflection on 2018.…

    September has been a bit hectic, ain’t it? I didn’t expect my September to be so busy! I haven’t had a chance to sit down and plan posts, which is something that I usually do. Anyway, here’s a post now and a round up of my September. ALOPECIA AWARENESS September marked Alopecia Awareness Month and so I made a big decision to shave the remainder of my hair off! I didn’t have much left anyway, but there was always this feeling that that’s still my hair and shaving it is a big deal. For once I can actually look in the mirror and not cringe anymore. It’s still a bit…

    Life Lately 4

    In my “And We’re Back” post I mentioned that I hadn’t really done much whilst on my hiatus, but that is actually a lie. Looking back, I actually did quite a bit including meeting Pauline and Hamdah, seeing Tiff again and going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour and eating a helluva lot of KBBQ. Here’s a quick life update for y’all including plenty of food pics, so settle in with a cuppa tea and see what I’ve been up to. BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES Mutay always finds the best things to do around London and if it weren’t for her I’d probably just be in my bed watching Netflix and…

    Let’s Talk About Alopecia

    I want to start a new series. I guess this would be the second post in the series as I previously posted Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby. My aim is to open up a discussion and get people discussing things they never usually would or learn things they didn’t know about before. I wrote about alopecia once on my blog back in 2011 and even then it was only brief. I want to start a conversation about what alopecia is and what it means to have alopecia. Let’s get the technical stuff out of the way first: What is alopecia? Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss. There…
